This year, National Volunteer Week is April 18-April 24, 2021. During this week, we celebrate Canadian volunteers all across the country who donate their time to help others. We would like to feature one of our favorite programs to volunteer for, the Look Good Feel Better Program (LGFB).
Nightingale Medical is proud to be involved with Look Good Feel Better Program. We joined their program as an official retailer in summer 2018. The LGFB workshops offer survivors with cancer a sense of community by providing them the opportunity to come together to learn and share. The workshops work through different signature steps including: skin care & cosmetics, hair alternatives, additional care and breast care. The latter segment includes a section on bra and breast form options, fitting tips and managing lymphedema presented by our Nightingale Medical volunteer mastectomy specialist.
The Look Good Feel Better Organization is especially thankful this year for their volunteers. They have not been able to host in-person workshops right now, but their volunteers have been heavily involved by engaging online and filming quick tips, to referring survivors to the online workshops, and even showing their support financially.
